TWO FAIRFAX COUNTY BRIDGES REPLACED OVER SUMMER
Towlston, Twin Lakes re-opened in time for school year

Fairfax Bridges

FAIRFAX – The Virginia Department of Transportation re-opened two bridges in Fairfax County today, after crews worked quickly to replace the crossings in just two months and restore traffic for school bus routes.

The Twin Lakes Bridge over Johnny Moore Creek in Clifton re-opened this afternoon. The 1920s-era bridge was replaced and widened to include two-foot shoulders and match the roadway approach.

The $1 million project was completed by Fort Myer Construction Corporation.

Towlston Road over Rocky Run in Great Falls also opened today. Plans were underway to replace the original 1949 bridge when it was washed out by Tropical Storm Lee in 2011. The new bridge replaced a temporary structure provided under emergency contract in 2011 and now has an improved hydraulic capacity to handle high water during storms.

The $1 million project was completed by Shirley Contracting Company.
